When we have the need to justify

The little things that we do wrong;

We develop a callous around our heart

And sear our conscience along.

We believe that we are justified

When we confess to others our sins,

But we’re neglecting the source of forgiveness

And the true peace that only Christ brings.

We enter through the rear door

As we place our trust in man,

And do not acknowledge the Saviour direct

As we believe man best understands.

There needs to be a change of heart

As we repent of our deception;

For not honouring Jesus as Lord and Savior

As in our prayers He is hardly mentioned.

As we pick up our cross daily

And exchange our will for the Lord’s;

He will cleanse us from unrighteousness

As we inherit the promises stored.

God is waiting patiently

As a U-turn is made in our hearts;

So He’ll bless us with pure peace and love

So we can truly be set apart.

“Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world…” Acts 17:30-31

“None of them can by any means redeem his brother, nor give a ransom for him – For the redemption of their souls is costly..” Psalm 49:7-8
